Even amongst hardcore film fans Todd Lieberman isn’t a household name, but he probably should be. The Oscar nominated producer of The Fighter, his career started at Summit, where he was instrumental in getting Memento into production, as well as in the first film in the American Pie franchise. Since 2004 he’s been producing movies at Mandeville Films, alongside business partner David Hoberman; making movies as diverse as The Fighter, The Muppets and forthcoming zombie rom-com, Warm Bodies.
Right now Lieberman is in the UK, overseeing work on The Muppets… Again!, and a few days before the cameras rolled on Kermit and co, Lieberman took time out of his busy day to speak to us about his career, his eclectic taste in movies, and of course working with the Muppets (again).
We’ve broken the interview down into three parts, and will be running one a day until Friday. »
